93James Suckling

Ripe and generous with lovely freshness. This is a very elegant Haut-Médoc that has excellent balance and a long, almost silky finish...

93Wine Enthusiast

This richly structured wine manages to maintain balance and plenty of black-fruit acidity.

91-93The Wine Advocate

...a very refined bouquet with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, cedar and pressed flowers that unfurls beautifully in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite robust and firm tannin... It delivers a wonderful, persistent pencil box tinged finish and a long, graphite aftertaste. This is a superb contribution to the vintage, just classic, damn delicious Left Bank Bordeaux.

91Vinous / IWC intense blackberry, cedar and gravel-scented bouquet... The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and quite saline and spicy.

90Jeb Dunnuck

...displays a plump, sexy, forward style as well as beautiful plum and blue fruits and notes of tobacco. With plenty of fruit, medium-bodied richness, and the purity that’s the hallmark of the vintage...

16Jancis Robinson

Dusty, smoky black fruit with just a hint of vanilla sweetness.


France, Bordeaux, Haut-Médoc

Bordeaux is the world’s most famous fine-wine producing region. Even non-wine drinkers recognize the names of Bordeaux’s celebrated wines, such as Margaux and Lafite-Rothschild. Located near the Atlantic coast in southwest France, the region takes its name from the seaport city of Bordeaux, a wine trading center with an outstanding site on the Garonne River and easy access to the Atlantic. Like most French wine regions, Bordeaux’s first vineyards were planted by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, then tended by medieval monks. Aristocrats and nobility later owned the region’s best estates and today estates are owned by everyone from non-French business conglomerates to families who have been proprietors for generations. Bordeaux has nearly 280,000 acres of vineyards, 57 appellations and 10,000 wine-producing châteaux. Bordeaux is bifurcated by the Gironde Estuary into so-called “right bank” and “left bank” appellations. Bordeaux’s red wines are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It also makes white wines of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. There are several classification systems in Bordeaux. All are attempts to rank the estates based on the historic quality of the wines.
